Team News: Denizlispor
The Denizlispor boss Ali Tandoğan has no fitness concerns at all before this clash owing to a fully healthy group available for selection. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Emirhan Kascioglu and Alihan Kalkan.
Team News: Manisa FK
Thanks to a largely available group, there is only a single fitness issue for the Manisa FK boss to contend with. Nizamettin Caliskan (Cruciate Ligament Injury) misses out for this game. The suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Veli Cetin and Batuhan Nizam.
We’re inclined to think that Denizlispor will really need to work well to put one past this Manisa FK lineup who we think will emerge victorious.
We’re therefore seeing a very competitive game with a 0-1 advantage for Manisa FK when the full-time whistle blows.
Expecting it to be tight.
